Spanks: Not sure what you mean. Suck in your gut? Isolate your abs? Would focus on core conditioning. This includes both back and abdominal exercises.

Wrong question: Doing push ups will increase the strength and size of chest and shoulder muscles. If done with proper form it is also great for core strength. Push-ups will not, however, remove fat from your chest. Look closely at your diet and make necessary changes to help you lose fat.
